What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

And furthermore...


Some skeptics, of course, disagree. To them I say:


So in conclusion, ladies and gentlemen:


Thank you all. I'll get off my soapbox now.

Ashleigh E., Anony M., Alison P., T.X., Heidi, & Abby M., I trust you got my point?

Don't miss my virtual visit with Alex, Neatorama's founder, here!

And if you live in Portland, don't forget to come see me and John at Powell's tonight!

...of a Wreckerator.


TO DO:
